Journalists are not heartless about the subjects they interview or report about.

Let me rephrase: Most journalists are not entirely heartless about many subjects they interview or report about.

Shoot first . . . and die later.

Elizabeth Danniher’s elderly neighbor has killed a man who was apparently trying to steal her priceless Western artifacts. As a former top national TV reporter, Elizabeth knows the claim of self-defense can satisfy the legal system, yet leave her neighbor in danger.

Doing what she does best – asking questions – Elizabeth sidesteps her boss and a nosy,  jealous anchorman to investigate an eccentric billionaire, ambitious curator, rival collectors, family feuds, and Cottonwood County crimes from a century ago.

As she digs deeper, Elizabeth is helped by friends. That’s canine as well as human friends, and includes two male humans who’d definitely like to be more than friends.

Before this is over, Elizabeth will need every one of them, as her questions push someone to put an permanent end to her questions.

“This is one of those books that you want to stop everything to read while hoping it never ends.” 5* review, Mary Buckham, best-selling author and acclaimed writing teacher

“Sign Off is a brisk, enthralling page-turner” – P.B. Ryan, bestselling author
 “I loved this book. Colorful characters, intriguing, intelligent mystery, plus the state of Wyoming leaping off every page.” – Emilie Richards, USA Today bestselling author.

“She writes a little like Janet Evanovich only better.”

“While the mystery itself is twisty-turny and thoroughly engaging, it's the smart and witty writing that I loved the best.” – Diane Chamberlain, bestselling author

“E.M.’s internal monologues are sharp, snappy and often hilarious.”

“McLinn has created in E.M. a female protagonist who is flawed but likable, never silly or cartoonish, and definitely not made of cardboard.”
